Have the vehicle checked after filling the transmission. You should not let the fluid get low on the new transmission. You may need to have the vehicle run on a lift to see where the leak is. If you need help getting this checked, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to locate and repair any leaks and perform a transmission fluid service if necessary.
